Bikes at the Olive Tree Markets

I visisted the Olive Tree Markets for the first time this weekend and was very surprised and pleased to find that many people had ridden there by bike

The ladies’ Gazelle is a very rare sight around here, I am wondering if it Lynne’s. If it is not, then there must be at least two ladies’ Gazelles in Newcastle.

I talked to a mother and her son who had folding bikes and had travelled here for the weekend, they do bicycle holidays and had been to France last year. It seems that Newcastle, with the Fernleigh Track, is now attracting such visitors.

    I think I saw that Gazelle in the same area about 2 months ago. The loop frame version of mine.

    Yes, not many Gazelle’s around here, I know of three in Newcastle, and that is counting yours Peter!
